by | Nov 21, 2023

Summary: Military members receive a 20% discount on N.C. Forest Service tree seedling orders through November. Discount available for active, retired and honorable discharged members.

  • I am very proud of the N.C. Forest Service’s Nursery and Tree Improvement program, which raises tree seedlings from seeds collected from native trees throughout the year.
  • I wish I had come up with this idea, but this program has been around for nearly 100 years.
  • It started in 1924 with the goal of providing a reliable, affordable and high-quality supply of tree seedlings for residents interested in restocking and harvesting their forestland.
  • The Tree Improvement Program area has specifically focused on developing improved selections of key tree species that are of high economic value to forest landowners.
  • Some of these species include loblolly pine, longleaf pine, shortleaf pine, Eastern white pine and Atlantic white cedar.
  • This program ensures residents have access to the best native trees and genetics available for use on their land.
  • Through the month of November, we are offering a 20% discount to military members – active, retired or honorably discharged – in appreciation for their service.
  • Many members of the military call North Carolina home and are forest landowners.
  • The discount applies to the first $500 of all new orders, up to a $100 discount.
  • Current available inventory includes southern yellow pines, native oaks and hardwoods, native understory grasses and Christmas tree species. Orders can be placed by calling 1-888-NCTREES.
  • You can find a complete list of available species and pricing on the N.C. Forest Service’s website at
